Hopefully in this shot you can see how the stagger is created using two different sizes of 12mm bearings. Theres a stop printed on one half that gives a fairly even offset from the edge. By changing the order of bearings and washers i can increase the width of the lip and the steepness of the step.
Brilliant ! I wish I had such a tool when I redid the pannelling, behind the seats on my GTD...
Do you know if a steel version of the same tool could be found on the net ? (was not able to find any...)
Have finished off the dashtop /footwell panel, with edges folded over where possible to avoid edge trims.
I accidentally put some dings in the panel when folding it. Have tried to beat it as flat as possible, but not sure if its flat enough. This may be a test for the paint to see if its still visible when painted, otherwise its back to square one...
Not sure what to coat the front panels with. I was going to go powdercoat, possibly crackle finish, but looking at alternatives. Has anyone used por15 OEM Bedliner? Looks really good and will stay flexible and resist stonechips. Thoughts?
Just a thought... who will look at your wheel wells when your driving?
Stonechips will come anyways, bare ally panels with slight coat of WD40 and easy to keep clean. Perhaps a layer or two with carbon fibre mat underside of front clip closest to the tyres to avoid stonechiping the paintjob from underside.
Any thoughts on top rear airducts? (The blanked off ones).
Sorry, just my two pennies worth. M
hey Bud et all
GTD front and rear clips were reinforced with 3mm core mat in the wheel arch areas. this added strength and protected the outside surface from stone impacts.
the bodywork i supply to Southern GT and others, is to the same spec as GTD supplied.
if it ain't broke...
